Your supply list includes: graphite pencil, Exacto knife and blades, small scissors, small bottle of Elmer’s glue, sketch book, and any and all colors wet and dry! For example, watercolors, gouache, color pencils. Cotton rag paper will be supplied with a materials fee. The goal is to complete a colorful collage artwork suitable for framing. Tea will be served and an hour will be provided for lunch to enjoy downtown Bay City eateries or bring your own. The cost of the workshop is $125 for members of Studio 23 and $170 for non-members.
Bonnie Lalley is a full time artist/illustrator living on a smallholding, in the American Midwest, with a man, seven chickens and a dog. She lives in a century old farmhouse restored by her cabinetmaker husband who is also the maker of frames for all of Bonnie’s work. This workshop will give you a glimpse inside her creative process and Bonnie’s lifestyle that is calmer, gentler and aesthetically beautiful.
